Papercuts Release Past Life Regression + Share Video for Sinister Smile

I’ve made no secret of my Jason Quever adoration these last few months, knowing that it would all peak with the release of Past Life Regression. So, congratulations to Papercuts, and to you, as you can now spend your day immersed in one of the better LPs to drop this year. Plus, we get the added bonus of a new visual adventure to go along with “Sinister Smile,” which might be one of the record’s poppier tracks, at least in a certain sense. There’s something timeless about this whole record, drawing from all corners of the rock canon to craft a brilliant collection of escapism. Do what’s right, and rush off to buy Past Life Regression today, out courtesy of Slumberland Records. Stream the album HERE.

Papercuts Share Lodger Single

I feel like Jason Quever is that person at the cool kids party, sipping his drink in the corner and taking mental notes at the chaos that surrounds him; he’s not bothered by the madness, though seemingly content to play the narrator and not the protagonist. Every time I listen to his work in Papercuts, I feel like he’s watching us, building this cinematic musical landscape of the darkened corners of our lives; though when he’s there, he extracts the beauty in those hidden moments, breathing life into our mundane world with his own brand of psychedelic pop. He’ll be releasing the new album, Past Life Regression, on April 1st via Slumberland Records.

Papercuts Announce Past Life Regression

I was hoping when Papercuts dropped Baxter’s Bliss EP late last year, Jason Quever was hinting at a brand new LP, and here we are friends; the band announce Past Life Regression, with two new tracks! Both give us a glimpse at varying sounds Jason’s toying with on the new record. “I Want My Jacket Back” definitely feels like it takes place in a more nostalgic era of San Francisco (Quever’s current homebase). Still, the song evolves, transcending into this cavernous folk pop sound suited for a day watching the fog roll on, all before the sun shines on the tune once more. Turn to “The Strange Boys” and you’ve got something a little that feels a little heavier in a sense. There’s something about the way all the sounds mix that is a bit disorienting, like your record is warped. Take that in tow with Jason’s voice, and it naturally creates this pleasantry that’s maximized when it peaks at the chorus. The new LP will be out on April 1st via Slumberland.
